Taking a road trip down Route 66? Stop off in Afton, an original farming and railroad town with some classic Route 66 roadside architecture. Here, visitors can take a tour of the original nine-foot narrow section of the famous route, known as the Ribbon Road, or partake in water sports down at the Grand Lake o’the Cherokees.
Afton is truly classic small town America and photographers will love the many chances to snap shots of the shells of vintage gas stations, hotels, and motels.
The Grand Lake is where locals and visitors can rent boats, jet skis, sailing boats or join yacht tours to explore the expansive waters of the lake. Additionally, outside of town the beauty of Oklahoma beckons with nearby walks and trails in nature.
For rainy days, head to the National Rod and Custom Car Hall of Fame museum, where an impressive display of cars will have motor-enthusiasts entertained for hours.
A good time to visit Afton is between August and November or March and June, avoiding the very hot summer.

— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
— I travel to Boston regularly and I like to use AllTheRooms as it’s tricky to find good accommodation at a good price. The platform is easy to use and provides a complete set of features that saves me time and money on every trip
